With lights doused and windows blacked out, President Bush flies into Baghdad for a surprise Thanksgiving meal with U.S. soldiers. The flight is made under extremely tight security, and aides tell the press Bush was at his Texas ranch. Bush is greeted with cheers and standing ovations from the soldiers. NPR's Don Gonyea reports from Washington, D.C.
